For the fifth time in his NBA career, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended.

Green was suspended for five games for his role in Tuesday night’s brawl between the Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves where Green choked Minnesota center Rudy Gobert.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the suspension Wednesday night.

When Green was suspended during the first round of the 2023 playoffs against the Sacramento Kings, NBA Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars alluded to Green’s status as a “repeat offender” playing a part in the suspension.

Golden State currently sits at 6-6 on the season. Green has averaged 8.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game so far.

Wojnarowski, along with Zach Lowe, Michael Wilbon, and Kendrick Perkins, discussed the decision on ESPN’s NBA halftime show

,Social media had plenty to say about the suspension.

One fan was disappointed with the length of the suspension, saying, “Should be much more than that for this behavior to happen again.”

Another fan agreed, saying, “Five games for choking someone out. NBA is so bad at giving punishments”

Another pointed out Green’s track record this season alone, saying, “Draymond Green has already received 3 technical fouls, been ejected from 2 games and has now been suspended for the next 5 games. We are just 12 games into the Warriors season.”

Another fan pointed out the double standard, saying, “Sports isn’t real life. If any of us did this in our job we’d no longer have a job.”
